It worked for me and I'm a serious ecto.

Since August I went from a slim 147 and today I weighed myself at 169lbs.

Doing 1-2 body parts per workout.

It takes the body longer to recover from full body workouts and you run the risk of overtraining and then you'll regress big time.

So you suggest a full body routine? Working with compound lifts with more then 3 workouts a week seems like a more solid choice. Seriously, most people I know have gone backwards in training on TBT, take a compound lift and do the shit of a it on one day, and a different compound lift and repeat. Or take a body part, and work it till you want to cry, and pick a different one the next day. That'll force way more growth then TBT

I heartily accept the motto, "That government is best which governs least"; and I should like to see it acted up to more rapidly and systematically.

Actualy I remember the exact opposite being said by a lot of trainers, for instance that squatting more than once a week isn't going to lead to enough recovery time for us skinny little ****s.

It's all about intensity when doing full body workouts and varying your push/pull movements. Do you think the guys who train for the UFC only focus on specific muscle groups for certain days? Hell no, they'll work every muscle group they have every day they train...they will just mix it up a bit to help prevent overtraining.

I think people bite too much into the notion that muscles need a whole week to recover from a workout. In my experience, you only need about 2-3 days per muscle group before you are ready to go again. If you are still feeling sore and can't perform 2-3 days after a workout, you are pushing yourself too hard.

No one really suggested that. Compound lifts like deadlifts, squats, oh presses, etc. work out a lot of muscles at once, which is what we are suggesting.

You think UFC fighters work every muscle group every day? Haha. Have you seen GSPs workouts? As grueling as they are, they would not be considered total body training. He does upper body movements on their own day. Recovery is a lot more then just time, nutrition, sleep, mental state, one cant really say you need blank amount of time after you work out. Oly lifters are the only people I've heard of that can do tbt every day and see results, and it only comes after YEARS of training to reach that.

BTW Sean Sherks weight training is isolation... And if you say he is a bad fighter you are crazy
